Roses are red, violets are blue, it’s okay to just spend Valentine’s Day with just you! The annually celebrated day of love is just days ahead so I wanted to let my single people know that it’s alright if you don’t have a significant other. It can be hard watching your friends showcase their almost perfect relationships and make you think you’re unworthy of love. Try not to compare yourself with others you see around because you are in your own lane. Instead of spending this day alone and bitter, you should be doing something for yourself to enjoy. You don’t need anyone to buy you anything. It’s easy to treat yourself to some flowers or chocolate.
There are so many other fun and easy ways I feel you could be treating yourself to on Valentine’s Day if you’re single. Although it’s nice to be spoiled by others, it feels great to be able to do something for yourself. I am here to give you all the tips you need for a better Valentine’s Day. Us single people have to look out for each other.
Start off by maybe asking a single friend to join you in whatever you choose to do. You guys can play “secret cupid” and exchange gifts with each other like you would do on Christmas. It’ll make you feel better about yourself. Laughing a lot will boost your mood and reduce stress. Have a funny movie marathon and wrap up in a cozy blanket. Get together with some of your single friends and have a party! Catch up with someone you miss. Sometimes we can get too busy with our lives and lose touch with people that are special to us. Taking yourself out might sound strange, but this is one of the best ways to be happy alone and get more comfortable by yourself.
Other people might think you’re a weirdo for celebrating Valentine’s Day if you’re single. But who cares what they think? You certainly shouldn’t. They’re the ones who don’t know how to enjoy being alone. They’re the ones who are going to break their pockets by trying to impress someone. It’s sad that these days people think they need to be with someone in order to feel complete. At least there’s no pressure with being single and you can do whatever you want. I say you get the easy way out by only having to make sure you satisfy yourself and no one else.
Don’t allow couples on social media to get you jealous and frustrated over their cute posts. I know it’s easier said than done but don’t let them make you feel like you’re not enough! People should change their perspectives about Valentine’s Day. It’s a day of love and affection for everyone, not just couples! Like Whitney Houston said, “Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all.” Look for love and you’ll find the greatest love of all inside of you. Let’s make it cool and positive to be single on Valentine’s Day.
